Bakery Signs

My daughter got a job at the local bakery that recently moved and opened a café on the premises.  I really appreciate all they have done to assist her.

I made two signs for them, this one is by the front of the bakery/café and everyone that goes there passes by it on their way inside:



The bakery is run through Community Inclusions, a non-profit organization that provides support to adults with intellectual disabilities.  I found this quote on their facebook page, so I made this sign for them as well:



Hope you like these!

Coat Racks Inspired by Fishing Huts

I have been working hard at getting a few extra things ready for my shop, I have some new signs and wall décor and also some coat hangers made.

 As I've said before, I live in a beautiful island province where there are many small fishing villages. Things are just gearing up for the new season.  We, here on Prince Edward Island are known for lobsters, oysters, snow crabs, many types of fish and even eels!

This is a photo I took  last year of nearby Miminegash, where there are colourful fishing huts:



Here's a hut with a message for tourists!


The colourful huts across the island inspired this coat rack made from pallet wood:

and this one, basically the same but a little less distressed:

These coat racks are about 18" wide and about 7" tall.

No toilet roll holder?  Use a clamp!  Holds one to three rolls.
